Episode 10: OUR BODIES! OUR LIVES! OUR FUCKING CHOICE!

Updated: May 22, 2019

In the wake of Georgia passing their mislead and misogynistic “Heartbeat Bill” which violates our rights as women, humans, and beings of this earth to decide what happens to our bodies, we want to talk about a heavy topic. In this episode, Mia and Kenny share their personal experiences with abortions, and why the choice is important. We talk about why the choice should be left up to the pregnant woman and what it means to take that choice away. Through our personal experiences, we have both needed planned parenthood, and for this, we also want to share the resources available at PP. The topic is heavy, but we believe it is a conversation that should be had to spread awareness of no one being alone in these decision making, and to lend support to our community. You’re never alone. We are with you. We are with one another. One love.


Take Home Notes


Planned Parenthood is not just a resource for (pregnant) women.

They service men and the LGBTQ+ community.


Our experiences are our stories. They are everything to us because they are the little details in which makes us whole. When our stories are not heard, we as a whole are not heard. We share our stories with you in hope that you will share yours with others.


One of our biggest wishes through our toughest times most of the time, is that we wished we knew someone going through the same thing. But you know what they say, you get what you give... So, let's get comfortable with 'giving' by making ourselves vulnerable enough to tell our stories. That way, in the future, when we crave the details about someone else's experience, to help make a decision for our owns, we feel comfortable enough to seek that guidance. That's how we create a strong bond within our circles.
